Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This confectionary tale featuring PI Regan Reilly will have a 325,000-copy first printing. (Aug.)
Library Journal
Clark, daughter of suspense writer Mary Higgins Clark, narrates this audiobook that features the second appearance of her detective, Regan Reilly. Reilly, visiting Miami for a friend's wedding, helps out her friend's uncle Richie Blossom, who has invented a new type of pantyhose that is durable beyond belief. The race is on to sell the rights to Blossom's hosiery in time to purchase the retirement home where he and his friends live. Soon, the lives of both Blossom and Reilly are threatened, as the inventor attempts to sell his creation to manufacturers at a pantyhose convention. This mystery is light and breezy, and the story moves along briskly as various characters maneuver to attain their goals. Clark has a fine talent for giving many of the characters distinctive voices, but her performance is marred in places by distracting pauses that break the flow of the narration. Recommended for popular fiction collections.-- Stacy Pober, Manhattan Coll. Libs., New York

Meet the Author

Carol Higgins Clark
Carol Higgins Clark is the author of ten bestselling Regan Reilly mysteries, including Decked which was nominated as Best First Novel for both the Agatha and Anthony Awards. She is the daughter of America's # 1 bestselling suspense writer, Mary Higgins Clark, and they have co-authored four bestselling holiday suspense novels. Before turning to writing, Carol studied acting. She has recorded several audiobooks and received AudioFile's Earphones Award of Excellence for reading her novel Jinxed. She lives in New York City.

Biography

If Mary Higgins Clark is the Queen of Suspense, then her daughter, Carol, could be considered the Princess of the Pratfall for the quirky comedy she liberally sprinkles throughout her bestselling Regan Reilly mysteries. As a reviewer once said, "Mary Higgins Clark goes for the jugular; Carol Higgins Clark goes for the funny bone."

Clark's apprenticeship to her mega-bestselling mom began early on. In 1975, when she was a student at Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts, mama Mary was still working full time, supporting five children on her own while trying to get her fledgling career as a novelist off the ground. Daughter Carol did her part to help, pitching in between term papers and acting classes to peck away at her mother's pages on a manual typewriter, making savvy edits along the way.

She recalled to the Philadelphia Inquirer her early days as an unsung editrix of her mother's work: "In one of her books, Loves Music, Loves to Dance, she had a serial killer who was making dates through the personal ads and then killing the girls. So the best friend of one of the girls he killed is trying to figure out who might have done it, so she's going out on these dates. So I was reading it and going over it with my mother and she had all these bars in New York. I said, 'No one goes there, no one goes there.' So I changed all the bars and restaurants. And People magazine said in its review: 'Clark offers a well-informed tour of New York's singles haunts.' So that was my contribution to that book. But I was really learning a lot."

After a few acting stints in off-Broadway theater, movies, and television -- her first role was as an extra on the soap opera Ryan's Hope -- Clark decided to try her hand at writing her own novel. She conjured up a semi-autobiographical heroine, sleuth Regan Reilly (who just so happens to have a celebrity author mother), and Decked debuted in 1992, garnering nominations for both an Agatha and an Anthony Award for Best First Novel. Clark relishes researching each new Regan Reilly adventure, gleaning inspiration from real-life capers both daffy and decadent.

After establishing herself in her own right as a farcical force to be reckoned with -- all of her Regan Reilly novels hit the New York Times bestseller list -- Clark teamed up with her mother in 2000 to pen their first holiday-themed thriller, Deck the Halls. We think it's pretty safe to say Carol didn't have to do all the typing!

Good To Know

Some outtakes from our interview with Clark:

"My first job was at a dry cleaner's. You'd be amazed at what you find in people's pockets! All sorts of clues about their lives! I had a character in Iced who worked at a dry cleaner's."

"I started out as an actress, and that background has helped me with my books. I love going to the theatre."

    Better than her most recent books.

    I read Carol's more recent books before I read this one and I must say, the suspense and plotting are better in this book. What if someone really could create a no-snag panty hose? This book is a good read.
